Lock-free by Example: Towards an Interesting Lock-free MPMC Queue

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

An "interesting" lock-free queue? Well, "multi-producer, multi-consumer, growing, shrinking, mostly contiguous, lock-free circular queue" was a bit long. Maybe "complicated" is a better word.

The "towards" is a hint that we won't complete the queue in 90 minutes. But we can make progress, and along the way encounter (and hopefully solve) many of the typical problems found in lock-free programming, and delve into the pros and cons of various solutions to those problems.

Christie Digital
Tony Van Eerd has been coding for well over 25 years, and hopefully coding well for at least some of that. Most of that time has been in the graphics/video/film/broadcast industry (at Inscriber/Adobe), writing low level pixel++, high level UI, as well as threading and everything else in between. After a few years of being "the C++ Guy" at BlackBerry, he is back to doing math and pixel++, now at Christie Digital.
